Tournament time!

Hell all! I hope you all are looking forward to our tournament tomorrow. I wanted to clarify the schedule that was posted.

We will be on court 2 for the majority of the day. If you look closely at the schedule you will see that we play our first games at 8:30 am on court 1! This is the only time we will be on court 1 until the playoffs (hopefully). Please make sure you are at the gym by 7:45 so we can get settled and ready to go.

If you have any questions, please let me or Coach 2K know. See you tomorrow!!:-)

service project

Good morning. I'm so sorry this is so last minute.

Every year upward likes to do a service project to help those in need. Our projects in the past have been working at food kitchens or filling bottles full of money.

SAVE THE DATE!! Monday, Jan 21st (MLK holiday) in order to assist the homeless in our area. Our goal is to assemble 200 ‘Manna Bags’ filled with necessities that a person experiencing homelessness does not have access to, like food, hygiene items. These bags are distributed by the Newark Empowerment Center who constantly assist the homeless or can be left in your car and passed out when you encounter those in need. We need help from each team to collect the items we will use on the 21st to create these bags! All teams will meet in the gym at Bible Fellowship at 10:00am – 12:00pm to assemble the Manna Bags for the homeless. Each team will be responsible for bringing $20 (about $2 per player) to reimburse the cost of the drawstring bags and their team’s minimum contribution from the list below. Many of these items can be found at dollar stores or sold in multi-packs. Check with your dentist or local grocer, they may be willing to donate items when they know it’s for a good cause. Extra donations in addition to your team’s minimum are welcome and will be used to fill extra bags or donated to resources that can assist the homeless.

13U-Tim Desserts (Fruit Snacks, Cookie Bars, or Pudding)

At least 200 individual items per our team. Please consider helping with this project and bring these items and money by Thursday the 17th at practice. Or with you on Monday the 21st.

Please come on Monday to help fill the bags and hang out with your teams.

Thanks and see you all tomorrow night.

Tournament help

Hello all! Coach 2K and I are really excited about our first tournament on January 12th. Details should be out by the middle of next week.

I wanted to check to see if there are any parents who are willing to work at our tournaments. We need help with scorekeeping, libero tracking and lines. If you are willing to help out, please let us know. Also, let us know if you already know how to be a volleyball scorekeeper. Lastly, if you're willing to learn, let us know:-)

Thank you so much! Happy New Year everyone:-)

Welcome Day, Practices/Tournaments and Team Connect, Oh my! :-)

Hello all! First of all, thank you so much for taking the time to make it to Welcome Day this past weekend. Coach Nikki (2K), Brandie and I genuinely enjoyed meeting your girls and spending time with them. What a fantastic group of kids! We are looking forward to a GREAT season and pray that your experience with Upward Stars this year is AWESOME.

I have an update on practices and wanted to fill you all in on specifics about the locations.

Mondays we will be practicing in the main gym at Caravel Academy - address is 2801 Del Laws Rd, Bear, DE 19701. Practice time is 7:30-9:00. Please make sure your girls are there by 7:15 so that they can gear up and stretch out prior to practice. We want to make sure we have as much court time as possible! :-) Sadly, NO PRACTICE MONDAY, DECEMBER 10th due to an event at Caravel Academy!

Thursdays we will be practicing at Bible Fellowship Church - address is 808 S Old Baltimore Pike, Newark, DE 19702 (same location as welcome day). Practice time is 7:45-9:00. If possible, please have your girls to practice by 7:15 as well this day (we will stretch and get ready, as well as do our devotion prior to practice to save some time and again, get as much court time as possible). We will be practicing on the court closest to the lobby as soon as you walk in the gym.

Last thing...for now :-)

I will be praying for each one of you and your families throughout the season. I know schedules can be busy and life can be crazy and seem overwhelming at times. Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:28 'come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest', He can do this for you if you 'cast all your cares and anxieties on Him, because He cares of you', 1 Peter 5:7. This is encouraging to me and I hope it is for you. No matter what you are dealing with or going through or struggling with...God is bigger!

See you at our first practice on Thursday, December 13th at Bible Fellowship Church!

In Him,

Coach Tim
